You probably read this title and thought to yourself, "what in the world is April Cool's Day?!". Well, you see, there's this little thing called April Fool's Day that occurs every April 1st. Everyone likes a good joke once in a while, but it seems like most of the pranks on April Fool's Day are mean or involve tricking someone. We decided to take the spirit of the day and make it better for everyone involved. Instead of being a fool, be cool. Read on for some fun but kind "pranks" to pull this April Cool's Day.
MAKE COMPLIMENT CARDS
Making compliment cards is simple, all you need is a pen and sheet of paper. If you're feeling really fancy, you can choose to add color or make them with thicker paper. Compliment cards are just what they sound like: compliments on a card. Hide them in places for your friends and family to find later. You're guaranteed to make their day.
HANG OUT WITH YOUR SIBLINGS.
Yes, brothers and sisters can get annoying. But they're family, and we're willing to bet that at the end of the day you'd do anything for them. Remind them of your love and appreciation for them by asking to spend time with them. It'll be a great way to get to know them better, plus your parents will be impressed.
INSERT COINS INTO SOMEONE'S PARKING METER
This seems random, but it's a fun idea to make someone's day for just a few cents. If you happen to live somewhere where there's a lot of parking meters, put coins in one that is about to expire or is already expired. The owners of the parked car will be grateful that they didn't get a ticket because of your kindness.
HOLD THE DOOR FOR SOMEONE
Holding the door for someone is so simple yet very kind. We often don't even think to hold the door for the person behind us, but it shows that you're thinking of them. Plus, then they don't get that awkward door slammed in their face.
INVITE A FRIEND YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN A WHILE TO HANG OUT
Sometimes it's easy to grow apart from friends, especially when they go to a different school or are involved in different activities. Asking a friend you haven't seen in a while to hang out will make their day and give you something to do. You'll get to catch up with them and do something fun. Sounds like a win-win to us.
LEAVE A NICE COMMENT ONLINE
It's no secret that the Internet is full of negativity and mean comments. Brighten someone's day by commenting on their Instagram, Facebook post, or YouTube video. Whether you know them or not, your positivity will certainly be unexpected and brighten their day.
Just because it's April Fool's Day doesn't mean your day has to be filled with mean pranks. Hopefully these nice "pranks" will make you feel a little bit cooler and help you celebrate April Cool's Day, because it's cool to be kind.
